    With their new owners Geely they should have sufficient resources to finally do something other than tweaking 20-year-old platforms indefinitely at a price point that is TBH not competitive any...

    Great car.

    WhatĎs annoying about it is that you canít customise suspension and exhaust noise separately so if you want the more aggressive suspension youíre stuck with the absurdly loud exhaust...
  3. F97 X3: BMW M340i xDrive disappoints

    I mentioned the X3M test a few weeks ago. Here is also the test of the M340i xDrive that echoes a lot of the things criticised in the X3M, notably bad steering and badly judged suspension components....

    To be fair itís not only that - people owning cars like these flip them quite frequently in order to have the newest again, and no warranty means quite a hit on your resale value.

    Great setup. Must be a hoot to drive! And understated too considering it doesn’t look like a Turbo or GT2, I like that.

    The rear end looks very...Audi like?

    What is weird is that on their website they have an 580 version listed. Not that 20hp makes any difference at these power levels anyway.

    Itís sooo annoying that Audi decided in some coke-induced haze of one of their idiotic bean counter meetings that for the C8 replacing the V8 with a generic 3l TDI engine is a good idea for the S6/7...

    The British sports car magazine Evo is not at all impressed about the X3M: https://www.evo.co.uk/bmw/x3/202087/bmw-x3-m-2020-review-the-right-ingredients-in-a-very-wrong-package

    It’s an excellent time by itself actually.

    A pity the C8 won’t be offered in Europe for the time being.

    Well the speedo the 550i is equipped with only goes up to 260 km/h. Once the car is remapped, that means I won’t know the speed I’m driving it once I’m beyond 260. That is obviously unacceptable.

    Exactly.

    Precisely the reasons I got myself a 550i XD now. The automatic transmission is great, fast enough, and the AWD makes the power of the car drivable in all conditions.

    Also, you can...

    Just got me a 550i xDrive as a daily driver, fabulous car for long distances and high speed Autobahn drives.

    Looking forward to seeing what I can get out of the N63TU with a remap and some AR...
  16. Didn't you say something similar about a McLaren?...

    Didn't you say something similar about a McLaren? :)

    Looks really good I must say, the facelifted R8 Gen2. Such an idiocy that Audi has decided to can this gorgeous car.
  17. General: I think BMW believes this is more or less covered...

    I think BMW believes this is more or less covered by the Alpina B3. Particularly if now theyíre also using the s58 engine in it.

    They tried to dyno the Pista. Unfortunately and due to the mid-engine layout (no possibility to put weight over the driven wheels to improve traction) they were unable to dyno it because they got...
  19. G20/G80: 'BMW design and the sorry slide from quiet confidence to muddled mediocrity'

    From British car magazine evo: https://www.evo.co.uk/bmw/201850/bmw-design-and-the-sorry-slide-from-quiet-confidence-to-muddled-mediocrity

    Magazines have to accept the cars that they are given. Otherwise you would not have anything to read at all.

    sport auto is the most rigorous of car magazines I know. They put each car in their...

    While I agree that buying a used MP4-12C without warranty is not a clever idea, I do not share the other points you made.

    While problems with the electronics and satnav of the MP4-12C were quite...

    Sure, I just wanted to point this out because that's what the magazine usually says.

    Thatís right but then Iím not interested in straight line performance. I want the car to drive well on curvy roads and on a race track like the Nordschleife, and I need to be able to use the...

    Exaxtly. The M235i comes with an open diff stock and that becomes an issue when you increase the torque massively. A limited slip diff like from OS Giken, Quaife, Wavetrac or Drexler would be of...

    Both are great cars in their own right. And there are a lot of similarities like the mid-engined layout that provides such great traction and control, the excellent driving position and short front...
